Arka Shoes History
Established in 1967 as a family owned and operated shoe store for men, women and children, and since has been specialized in wider widths and comfort footwear. Customer service is most important aspect of the business. Besides Canadian brand names, Arka has always prided themselves on carrying European lines from Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal and others. We have always carried one of the largest Canadian made winter boot collections in the city. Many of our staff has been with us for over 15 years. We do not believe in commission and all of us work together as a team to help every client that walks in through the door helping each other we feel gives the client the best possible service with honesty, and that old pushy salesperson is not to be found in our store!
We pride ourselves on importing quality leather inside and out so that shoe is leather lined as well as leather upper. Through the years Comfort Quality and Fashion in WIDER WIDTHS has been our motto! Every line that we put into our store if it comes in wider fitting we will have it!
